A Revolutionary 0-3: Matt Dryer hit two home runs and added five RBI to increase his league lead with 10 on the young season, but York still continues to look for their first win.
Bridgeport swept the Revolution, winning yesterday by a score of 12-7. Matt Ford had a rough first start, giving up nine earned runs in three innings of work.
Junior Spivey was 5-for-5 with four RBI.
York is the only winless team in the Atlantic League, while Bridgeport is obviously the only undefeated team.
Sharks Ride Strauss To The House: The Riversharks took two out of three from the Ducks, winning the rubber game, 5-4.
Brad Strauss was the hero again for Camden, driving in three more runs after yesterday’s bases-loaded triple.
Chris Fussell got his second straight save for the Riversharks, while Danny Graves got the loss for the Ducks, allowing three runs in the ninth inning.
SomerStruggles: For the second time in three games, the Newark Bears shut out the Somerset Patriots, this time winning by a score of 4-0.
Matt Sweeney didn’t look particularly sharp in his Atlantic League debut for the Bears, but Patriots batters were unable to solve him. He walked four and struck out six, but only gave up two hits.
Patriots outfielder Anton French left the game in the fourth inning because he didn’t feel well and was replaced by Jose Morban.
Run Over By A Bus: One day after one reporter who shall remain nameless compared them to the 2004 version of the club, the 2007 Road Warriors stuck it to the Barnstormers via a 17-7 butt-kicking at the Barn on Sunday afternoon.
Alhaji Turay hit a grand slam and Estee Harris drove in five. Jason Guarente wrote in his blog that there was a little animosity in this one, with Manny Santana getting plunked twice. Road Warriors batters were hit four times as well.
Jason Norderum, already on thin ice after getting booted out of the rotation this spring, managed to put together a string of 14 consecutive balls in this one.
